We don’t know about you, but we can’t stop staring at Kate Upton’s zero gravity Sports Illustrated spread. (Page 128, if you’d like to bookmark your issue.) Not only does the supermodel’s body look insane (it truly defies gravity), but the range of gold swimsuits (in honor of the mag’s golden anniversary, of course) have us ready to get a jump start on our swimsuit shopping. Luckily, a few of the looks are already on sale — and they’re not only wearable, but totally affordable!

Target teamed up with Sports Illustrated for an exclusive line of swimwear featured in the magazine, including the gold triangle bikini and shimmery bandeau-inspired design Upton wears well while in midair. We love that you can actually swim in these suits (you know, unlike like this photo of Chrissy Teigen wading topless with a wreath (!) around her waist), and that they cost only $35 (way more reasonable than some of the $200 and up suits featured).

For the shoot, Upton and her crew traveled to Cape Canaveral, Fla., where she experienced weightlessness in a zero-G environment. (Seriously, how else would she have topped her Antarctica photo shoot from 2013?) “I’m hoping I don’t throw up,” Upton joked with SI before the shoot. “It wouldn’t be a cute picture.”

What do you think of Upton’s latest spread? Are you a fan of her swimsuits? Catch a video about the new collection below and share your thoughts in the comments!

Lu on

She’s pretty, but no more attractive than the average college co-ed. I do wish the stylists could put her in a bikini top that fits just once.

Joe on

In 2 years shw will be doing weight watchers commercials with Jessica Simpson.

curlylox80 on

Joe why would you say something so nasty? Is it because she is not the super thin model that you’re used to seeing? Kate Uptown is what a reall woman looks like! Shake your head little boy and wake up from your fantasy world where everyone is perfect!

bb on

I agree with Lu. Her tops are always 5 sizes too small! I bet she’d look just as beautiful in clothes that fit her. I think some people that think she is “fat” probably think so because of the size she is wearing. If you wear clothes correctly, you will look smaller than if you wear too big/small of clothes.

heather on

In the second picture she looks like a double amputee

Meg on

Unattractive. She is a cute girl but whoever that of that picture is an idiot.

Gkm on

She’s just another chick with fake boobs with alot of gum showing in her mouth when she smiles :(

Lola on

She looks absolutely ridiculous.

Lonely Gurl on

Wow! Her Golden Globes look ginormous in that first pic. Would love to motorboat that!

Dawn S on

She’s such a beautiful girl and I love that she’s curvy but I can’t help but wish they would put a top on her that fits! I happen to be a busty gal as well, and finding a two piece that’s flattering to top and and bottom is nearly impossible–please show us something that works! :)
Cool zero gravity idea. Certainly tops Antarctica lol

Jamey on

Well, there’s the proof that this silicone stuffed bimbo really is an airhead.

Jen on

I think she looks great!! Beautiful girl with beautiful assets…as a model, it’s the requirement to show them off.

Kelley on

She’s pretty but average.. She plenty of skinny blondes that are just as pretty.. Don’t really understand all the hope around her.. Plus her boobs look deformed popping out of the top in the second pic.. Maybe should try tips that fit.. Just an idea!?

NIcki on

Wow these comments suck! She is a beautiful girl! It’s Sports Illustrated people! Of course they accentuate her ta ta’s. She looks lovely. Mean people are just ugly inside and out! How would you feel if this was your daughter or niece and all these people just rip thru her in these comments. Shame on all of you.

Guest on

Okay now those drooling fools at Sports Illustrated are just becoming idiotic morons.

Angella on

Let’s face it, their goal is to sell magazines. Dare say none of the males purchasing the anniversary issue will find fault with the fit of her bikini.

And we wonder why so many young women have body image issues.

Shall we hold our breath waiting for the male version of the magazine?!

mrsmass on

Is this the only way to get her in the magazine and not spend a fortune on photoshop services?

Dejavu all over again on

I’m not sure why all of you are ragging on her. She’s volumptious, curvy, and she looks like the “average” woman…with maybe a little more on top than most.
It’s so disturbing…we all b!tch when stars are too thin, then we attack when we think they’re too fat. Say something nice or DON”T COMMENT!!! Jeeze we can be so ugly.

Catherine in Tulsa on

So, who actually is on the cover? I saw her cover, and it was light years better than the one with the three girls.

Me on

Of course. I expect nothing less than hate and criticism from the jealous readers. Grow up! She is very pretty and looks great.

Ivixen on

Kind of getting tired of her. No pun intended, but she’s overexposed.

Tina on

Now why would they put HER in zero-gravity in a bikini? Oh yeah, so her boobs will puff up (like they need to). Bet it was some guys idea. As if just filming women in bikinis wasn’t exciting enough. Ridiculous. Please make tops that look pretty and sexy on women with ample bosoms.

tom on

Honestly…these shots are ridiculous. That bikini top is probably made for a 14yr old girl. Actually kinda gross. Women wonder when men will stop seeing them as sex objects only…THIS is why. Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition is why….Victoria’s Secret show is why. Also…where is the magazines that have the same hype and photo shoots featuring men in similar gear?

Betty on

those are not fake boobs.

guest on

I think Christie Brinkley is much prettier than Kate.

Jenny on

i would sell my soul to the devil to have her figure! anyone know his number? haha

Guest on

I don’t think anyone is necessarily saying she isn’t beautiful. She is, absolutely! But is it really necessary to put her in a top several sizes too small and then put her in a zero-gravity room so everyone can smirk at her boobs floating up into her face??? Come on, now. That is the epitome of stupid.

K. on

Oh for God’s sake. OK we get it, she is quite pretty…and?
Plus, these pictures look weird…especially that hair. :-)
Go put some clothes on.

Canada1 on

She’s pretty enough, but, you’re right that bikini top is ridiculous.

anyaalvarez on

Sorry to see that journalism has come to this. Getting all worked up over a bikini and having to write like a 13-year old. “Like, omg!! A $35 bikini!? That’s so amazeballs!” The author must feel really stupid for throwing their journalism degree down the gutter.

Elliott on

Funny to watch, but not a good photo shoot. Antarctica was better.

Dobz on

She has a pretty face and big boobs but a really bad body! The moment she let’s herself go a moment she will look horrible!! Thick mid section, skinny legs… Disgusting!!!!!
